Gorgeous shoes & handbags sit amongst giant lit letters spelling out Christian Louboutin. Each letter has it's own story to tell & can be traced back to original Vegas signage.

After a lot of typographical experimentation we laser cut a 1:10 scale models in acrylic to get a real understanding for proportion, lighting configuration and colours.

After much fine adjustment we went into production. We had metalworkers fold, roll and weld the stainless steel shells.

The lights are a mix of Pygmy and Golfball bulbs, 4 different colours of neon, backlit perspex and crystal Cabochon.

To make sure the window all came together beautifully each letter was powder coated in a rich, bright and glossy colour to match a shoe or a bag in Christian Louboutin's current collection.

    Its nice! But you almost can't see the shoes!

    • felix

      it's fine, the shoes are not as important as the name!

  • felix

    good, but would be great if it was bigger. it looks lost in the window, you can't have something so bombastic as your 'name in lights' and do it halfheartedly

  • eilie

    ..and its all about the neon signs?!

    Anyone finding this cool, do a google image search for Neon Boneyard.

    It's a museum in Las Vegas – if you're ever there it's off the beaten track but an essential visit.

    I think this window display rocks! If I’m honest, not seeing the shoes or what’s inside would compel me to go inside.
